NYC downtown DJ and producer Amrit just released debut EP, Lies and to set things off, she's released a taboo-esque, silky-smooth single titled, "Mouth." The message is clear in this one, sexual reciprocity and equality. “There is this accepted double standard in society today, especially in music,” the Amrit says. “Men are almost encouraged to be misogynistic, and success is often measured by sexual prowess. Whether it’s subtle or overt, it’s okay as a man. Whereas women are cautioned or slut-shamed for sharing the same tendencies. It’s not really about the act itself, but the freedom as a woman to owning my own sexuality. When writing the song, there was never that moment of ‘Can we say this, can I put this out there?'” Listen above and head over to iTunes to get a copy of Lies.
